      PLEASE READ: TAMB is not closing!   10/12/2017

      Just to provide an update on the future of the Tartan Army Message Board. To be clear the board will not be closing and instead will be staying open and will hopefully go from strength to strength. Who Are We? We are a group of Scotland supporters who have varied skills and expertise, along with experience of  being involved in football and running football message boards. When we heard the TAMB faced closure, we contacted the old team with a detailed plan which involved financing and running the board. After speaking to the old team on a number of occasions they have allowed us to put our plan into action. While speaking to them and going on their experience and that of those before them, we have elected to keep our identity private, however rest assured we have the best intentions for the board and those on it. Our Plans. Our plan will involve a number of stages which we hope will not only keep the board going but help improve and rejuvenate it. Our first step will be to do a bit of a clean-up of the board. This will involve some downtime for a few hours where posting will be disabled. We plan to do this early next week, a full notice will be posted on the board then. Once that is completed we will be upgrading the current board platform, both behind the scenes and hopefully aesthetically too. There will be an ongoing process of board improvements which we hope you, the user will help us with, so you have a board you will enjoy We thank the old board team for all their hard work, dedication and their help during this handover and hope you will all help support our plans going forward.

Luke Shanley on Sky has just said there will be a friendly next month likely to be at Pittodrie.

Thank God. We can stop all this ‘let’s keep the muppet because we can’t think of anyone better’ pish. 

We have lots of time to get a suitable replacement in. Whoever it is won’t do any worse than Strachan.

Now who do we get in?

Remembering the SFA are doing the hiring then I fear it will be a cheap option without imagination. Someone like Moyes, McInnes, Mackay or Owen Coyle.

Many fans (myself included) woulds prefer a foreign option but I can't see the SFA having the balls, the imagination or inclination to go down this route.

He basically wrote his own resignation after game on sunday.

The guy is a buffoon. I wanted rid of him ages ago but as soon as he started blaming genetics instead of admitting responsibility there was no way back for him. 

To be fair, I’m not sure if he wanted to stay anyway. He looked like he’d had enough.

I won’t miss the drivel he comes out with in press conferences. Let’s hope the next man is more professional and takes responsibility for his decisions.

Ach, not going to stick the knife in - he was a big improvement on what came before and we should be thankful for that. Would really have loved if he was the one to take us back to a major but it wasn't to be.

Cast the net wide. Manager should get two campaigns and it's his second campaign he should be judged and the best thing they could do is get some of the hungry, younger players into the squad as soon as possible.

I'd like to see someone who lives in Scotland and goes to Scottish games in addition to Old Firm games.

Well who do you suggest then?

I can see a lot of people in here are terrified that it’s going to be Moyes or McInnes but nobody seems to be making any alternative suggestions. 

I wouldn’t want Moyes or Coyle, MacKay’s racist controversy will stop him being considered but I wouldn’t mind McInnes. He’s a young, forward thinking manager and wouldn’t do any worse than Strachan. 

I wouldn’t mind Walter Smith having another go but I doubt he’d fancy it and lots of people would moan because he left us before. 

People seem to want a manager who has managed at the highest level, won’t cost too much and is a big name.

Not asking for too much are they?

I am pretty happy about this - as it was by mutual consent.

As long as we don't go cheap-charlie now - or get someone who obviously wants to use it as a springboard back to club management (Moyes et al) - then I will be fine with most options ... as long as there is a commitment towards a squad rebuild.

I've got little faith in the SFA to make the right call.

It'll be the most obvious and cheapest option available. My money is on McLeish.

Who would you go for then?

Exactly like him. Plus he will be getting the bus to the game with the fans.
